“I have always enjoyed working with Lissa and Kaizen. She has supported Boston Scientific on a number of occasions and I have found with her background in the healthcare industry and having been in an internal recruitment role, this has given her the insight into the types of people we would look for within our organisation and her approach to working with us as a client is a true partnership. Lissa has been able to support us on very challenging positions where other suppliers have not been able to which has been a great support to us.”

“We've had a lot of change in our department over the last twelve months. As such, we've been fortunate to have Clair as our recruitment partner. On every occasion, Clair has taken our requirements on board even when we overlaid these with technical and financial specifications specific to our industry and profession. It was great to have Clair's commitment right from when a position became vacant to when the successful incumbent onboard. I fully recommend Clair as recruitment partner.”

“Lissa partnered with me in order to deliver the UK & Ireland recruitment needs at Allergan. During the time she worked with me, she was an absolute professional ensuring that the candidate experience was second to none, establishing Allergan as a great place to work with those candidates. She worked with my managers to ensure she was delivering the right candidates for the role, and was a great source for pipelining where we identified future gaps in our workforce. It was a real pleasure working with her and I would not hesitate to engage with her in the future.”

“Clair is an excellent recruiter who takes time to fully understand every brief given and only submits qualified candidates who match the criteria. I was particularly impressed with Clair when she placed two candidates into very niche roles. Most other agencies I have used struggled in these areas whereas Clair has excelled, so I would have no hesitation in recommending her.”
